Rainy Days, Rainy Days

Hey. It's nice when it rains because it is like a shower for the city. Imagine trying to get the amount of washing done in the city that the rain accomplishes it would be really expensive. It is like putting Chicago in a giant dishwasher.
It would be great if we created more ways to take advantage of the amazing power of the rain and all that free water. Also it would be cool if the city was designed to change the functionality of the public areas when it rained. The streets could be canals and the parks could be ponds and the building tops could be swimming pools.

Mister Black

This week we are making some promotional videos for Nike. They have created a character named Mr Black who travels to rivaling highschools and get the kids excited about a big upcoming football game and about Nike gear. Mr Black is played by a improv actor whos real name i forget. I believe it is Pat. He is tons of fun to work with. Not only do I get over a weeks worth of work out of this deal I also get new shoes. They gave me the opportunity to go pick out any footwear from Niketown, downtown Chicago. Usually I would not wear Nike, but it's free and an I get to have ridiculous shoes I would have otherwise never invested in.
